The following questions can provide shortcuts to connecting with the Universal Truth:

Surrender Personal Will to the Divine

Do I really want to surrender my will or am I still caught in the illusion?

Are the choices I made today in line with my spiritual life?

I am calling my spirit back from illusions.
